Two equal parts.

dont ask me, ask mathematicions

first divide the hexagon into three parts a rectangle and two triangles then try to findthe areas of all and then take individual heights and add them to get the height of the hexagon

If you have a diagram, divide it equally in six peices, then take three groups of two and erase the line in between the twos.

Yes * * * * * No. A median is a line from a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side. It divides the triangle into congruent parts only if the triangle is equilateral or if the triangle is isosceles and it is the median from the unequal vertex. In all other cases the two parts will not be congruent.

Select any point inside the hexagon and draw a line segment to any point on the boundary of the hexagon. Draw 7 more such segments. These will divide the hexagon into 8 parts. The parts will not be equal but that was not a requirement of the question.
